Earlier, even Dheeraj Dhoopar had expressed his excitement to be part of the supernatural show to Mumbai Mirror and had said, "Naagin has emerged as a big brand and I didn’t think twice before giving my nod. I am a fan of the hot Naagin ladies... my favourite part of the show is watching them dance."

"It’s going to be challenging because I have only played normal, human characters till now. Also, for a VFX-heavy show like Naagin, you have to pretend act with props, which are later enhanced or replaced on the edit table, so that will be new," he added.
